[Zurich] Cheapest place to swap Winter/Summer tyres

Hi all, I was wondering if you would advise me on the cheapest place to swap tyres in Zri.

Last time I went to a small shop close to Conforama (Schlieren), it was ok. I paid 70 CHF in total, but I had to wait about one hour and a half. I guess it can be cheaper?

Thanks
Stefano

Right, but I don't see it as very easy. I mean I have to change only the tyres, not the whole wheel, that I would be able to do. I would have to remove the rubber, and balance it afterwards (adjust the rotation symmetry adding weights). How do you do that at home?

If you are getting the tyres changed off the rims for 70CHF thats good. Most garages charge 50CHF for changing the wheels which is much less labour intensive.

The vast majority of people here have a second set of wheels for their winter tyres, and then it is entirely possible to do it yourself and many people do.
